Default Diff assemble tips for Brushless.

I will be getting into the modified class and be using 3.5/4.5 brushless.
What or are there any good tips for building diffs for this application.

Ive read about guys burning out diffs and dont want to go down this road.
I am running a TOP Racing Scythe which i believe uses Yokomo diffs.
I am sure it would help a lot of guys who are getting into or running this class.
Thanks in advance.

If you are using the plastic outdrives, you should rebuild your diff every4/5 packs. I only burn one diff with plastic outdrives and this is because I don't rebuilt it between 2 sessions.
It would be better to use aluminium outdrives.
Other very important thing is to use the good grease. I always use AE Black grease in the thrust bearing and AE white grease (ref 6591) in the diff ring and balls and spur.
Other tip, after rebuildinfg your diff put it on the car then, use a motor master with brushed motor on the car or just a little throttle for 1minute and block one wheel by hand. after , adjust the diff and it would be fine
